Working with Textures

Working with textures

Working with sensory bins is an easy way to get your child used to many different textures. Any kind of bin with a lid will work. The bins will be either calming or stimulating for your child. Try out the different textures and figure out which ones are calming and which ones are stimulating. You can put many different things in the bins: dry rice, dry flour, dry beans, dry lentils, sand,and dry noodles.

Rice-bin

Take a big bin with a tight fit lid and fill it with uncooked rice. Regular rice works best. Put some small toys in there, hide them under the rice and have your child dig them out. Also put a cup and spoon in there and let your child play with it.

Noodle-bin

Take a big bin with a tight fit lid and fill it with uncooked pasta. Any kind of pasta will work. Put some small toys in the bin, hide them under the pasta and have your child dig them out. Also put a cup and spoon in there and let your child play with it.

Bean-bin

Take a big bin with a tight fit lid and fill it with uncooked pasta. Any kind of pasta will work. Put some small toys in the bin, hide them under the pasta and have your child dig them out. Also put a cup and spoon in there and let your child play with it.
